Finally finished this! Took about 45 hours, but it was worth it.
Mid-way through the drawing I bought some new supplies - two 0.3 mm mechanical pencils, and a thin eraser for details. I filled one mechanical pencil with B lead, the other with H lead. They were an absolute necessity in drawing something like this that demanded clean, sharp lines. I also switched from a Faber-Castell set to Tombow Monos. A slight upgrade.
-Tombow Mono pencil set (6B-4H)
-Faber-Castell Jumbo 8B pencil (for background)
-Charcoal (for background)
-Pentel Graph Gear 500 mechanical pencil
-Papermate Tuff Stuff Eraser Stick (highly recommend this. it's 1/8th inch in diameter and sturdy enough for tiny details.)
-Staedtler Mars eraser
Thanks for viewing, I appreciate your comments!
